Sunset on the Brazos River. 

Badlands

Revisited some old and familiar haunts yesterday, including an area we had not seen in 26 years-Horse-Tooth Hill. These deposits hold a rich diversity of Eocene mammal fossils (50-55 million years old). Took a bout an hour to collect five different species of mammals including the first horse (hyracotherium), a large hippo-like ungulate (coryphodon), some sort of rare carnivore, shrews and other unidentified small rodent-like mammals. 

Dude, whatcha cooking?

Sitting in Fosters Bar in Chama New Mexico watching Netherlands take on Argentina, a much better match up than yesterday’s Brazilian waxing.  Rooting for both teams, but would be nice to have South America represent.

I was driving past a business here in the Houston Heights, when I glimpsed this painted on the side of the building. I recognized that iconic WWII poster before I realized it was not just any woman, but 14 year old Malala Yousafzai, the Pakistani girl who was attacked for wanting an education. The words next to her are her quote, ( “I don’t mind if I have to sit on the floor at school.) All I want is education. And I’m afraid of no one.”

This is gorgeous.

Sitting here in a a very empty bar in Pagosa, Colorado watching the Germany Brazil semi final. Germany just scored goal number 5 in the first thirty minutes! Guess the guy and the white tee is for Brazil?
